Mobile Suit Gundam: Gundam vs. Zeta Gundam (Kidou Senshi Gundam: Gundam vs. Z Gundam in Japan) is a PS2 and GameCube arcade third-person shooter. It was released on the PlayStation 2 in the U.S. on June 29, 2005.[1] The game takes place seven years after the One Year War Gundam storyline.[1] The game features 31 mobile suits[2] which can be played on five different modes. These modes are arcade, versus, universal century mode, survival, and training.[3]

The game is praised for the number of available playable mobile suits and the number of different modes of play. However, it is criticized for the bland background, poor controls, low frame rates and an unadjustable camera angle.[1][4]

The game received negative reviews upon its US release. IGN rated it a 3.4 out of 10 score,[5] and GameSpot rated it a 6.6 out of 10 score.[3]
